This sound good, I would just like to extend this and allow also
separation of swap LV into separate VG.
It also makes sense to organize all of these option as a sub-menu
under storage configuration.
One more aspect is to extend the syntax of "storage_vol" boot
parameter to support autoinstalls with advanced storage
configurations:

 storage_vol=<DISK>,<VG>,<LV>,<SIZE_MB>:...

instead of current format:
storage_vol=BOOT_MB:SWAP_MB:ROOT_MB:CONFIG_MB:LOGGING_MB:DATA_MB

Any other ideas what else should we have in the storage configuration sub-menu?
